jersey governor chris christie in the aftermath of the storm. how is the white house handling those complaints? >> well, martin, good afternoon. the white house publicly is saying they're not going to comment on the complaints or the president's visit really, what it could mean politically, because they say this is not a time for politics. i can tell you privately though that both democrats and republicans were a little bit surprised by governor christie's tone yesterday. they said he could have thanked the president, but he was really effusive about it. i want to make the important point i spoke to one of my republican sources who lived in the areas that was battered by sandy and he said, look, it is possible that governor christie is just very thankful for the president being there because there are so many people who are suffering. having said that, we are less than a week out from election day, so, of course, the visit will be viewed through a political lens. of course, governor christie presides over a blue state. he's up for re-election next year and, of course, there are rumb
did not. there's been a bit of a political pushback going on this evening. governor chris christie earlier this afternoon called out atlantic city mayor admonishing him for keeping shelters on this barrier island instead of bussing people off the island as they did last year during irene. and that's why we have a situation. let's walk over here and show you what the rest o of atlantic city is dealing with. this is an access ramp that takes you up to the boardwalk. so these are the streets of atlantic city down here. this is what it looks like. several feet of water covering the street. and here's where things became a problem. you have 400 people on the other side of the city who decided to ride out the storm and stay in their homes and as we talked earlier today, flood water was coming into those homes and there was no way for local emergency crews to get to them. so they had to mobilize national guard units to get those people out of their homes. things got so dangerous they had to pull the personnel back. so there were a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side
bloomberg is doing a great job. >> yes, and chris christie, governor of new jersey doing a great job. he is saying the president is doing a great job getting him everything he needs. >> thank god they are not playing politics. >> right. >> he is not standing on ceremony, what a great, great opportunity to show really that they can work together in times of emergency -- >> unlike mitt romney. >> well mitt romney doesn't have any opportunity right now to look presidential. he has nothing to do except for -- >> we're just talking about he is calling these things disaster relief when they are clearly political events. >> exactly. >> obama: i have spoken to all of the governors in all of these states we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema.
of chris christie having the republican over, and he argued you take help wherever you can find it and bloomberg passed onen a walk through because he said it would have created more commotion and fuss, and not chris christie, bad blood? >>guest: i don't think so. i think he is the go of the state and an enormous crisis and in the middle of the crisis you embrace everyone. >>neil: but you need fema, can a president withhold it? >>guest: no, a president would not withhold it. that doesn't happen. i worked very well with president clinton and his fema director and you do want the support from the federal government but the driving force of the local governments and the state government, and it is the state government that requests the disaster and declaration that asks fema to come in and i cannot conceive of fema not coming in. >> it is never a case of a president holding a grudge. >> not with a disaster. we are better than that. >>neil: quick thoughts on the race? >>guest: i am optimistic, people realize we need a new direction and you talked about the economic climate and how h
. the sprint to the finish. if you don't run, chris christie will be the president. >> we begin with the coverage of hurricane sandy. others there is death, devastation and speaking with reporters this afternoon. new jersey's republican governor christie continued to talk about the importance of bipartisan cooperation. >> in moments like this. there are not democratic and republican neighbors who have been affected by this storm. our job is to work together to return new jersey to normalcy as quickly as possible. that is what people expect of us now. >> back on the campaign trail the president echoed governor christie in wisconsin. >> there are no democrats or republicans. fellow american peoples, leaders working to fix what is broken. neighbors helping neighbors and communities rallies to rebuild. a spirit that says, in the end we are all in this together that we rise or fall as one nation as one people. >> as for where the recovery stands tonight around 4.6 million homes and businesses without power. that is done from 8 million after the storm. wnbc here in new york reports th
of president obama and new jersey republican governor chris christie responding together and touring the damage together, this emphatic visual rebuke to the republican closing argument that president obama can never work with republicans. this isn't israel invading egypt in 1956, but this is a real deal and rare october surprise that could affect this election and honestly nobody saw it coming. booking tonight for the show about which we are very glad and excited. new york's governor andrew cuomo is going to be joining us live in just a couple of minutes. >>> governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doings jobs people elected us to do. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal co
is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not disenfranchised. >> joe, i understand it's not just for the people who have been affected by the super stor
boosters, new jersey governor chris christie, being there with president obama saying sort of,"to hell with politics, this is about people's lives." t think we could see a similar endorsement or chris christie says president obama is best on this issue? >> i doubt he would actually say that in so many words. but i think he actually did say something with body language an@ with political theater. it is a very, very important distinction. you saw chris christie snap into pragmatic governor mode, and mode much more similar to the way, for example, mike bloomberg conducts himself as mayor of the city. sure, his ideological views, but when there is a real crunch and a real need for leadership, he is not going to stand on -- he is not going to lean toward political posturing and certainly is not going at that point to pretend that the federal government has nothing to do with the health and welfare of american society. i think chris christie was communicating something significant in how he worked with the president and singled out the president's -- by the way, singled out fema for administ
for cbs news. >> when new jersey governor chris christie heard some residents were stranded on the barrier island, he blasted the mayor of atlantic city. christie said the mayor told people they could ride out the storm. that didn't sit well with the governor. >> once i signed that declaration of emergency, that power is the power of the governorship. you have a mayor, a rogue mayor, telling his citizens it's okay not to leave. i don't know what you call that. i don't call it effective governance. >> the governor says rescuers will not be able to reach residents until some time this morning. >>> sandy has grounded travelers all over the world. according to the flight tracking service flightaware, almost 14,000 flights have been canceled, around 8,000 flights monday and more than 5,500 today. it could take some travelers days to get to their final destination. >>> sandy may be dying down but she's packing a wallop. right now she's about ten miles outside of philadelphia. sustained winds are at 75 miles an hour. "cbs this morning saturday" meteorologist lonnie quinn is tracking the storm. >>
jacket is a perfect symbol for a sha shallow. >> you wanted to blame it on chris christie who also had a bomber jacket. >> let's look at the jacket and see that as a symbol. >> bush campaign for reelection and staten island looking for their power. >> and considering where storm hit and the media's attention span, how long is sandy going to get coverage? >> in the new york metropolitan area it's going to get a lot of coverage because we are still or some of us are still so devastated by it. i think overall the media is going to move on to the election. there is going to be a second day story on mayor bloomberg's decision not to cancel the marathon. it's a big debate this weekend. >> i just have to give a shout out our fox forecasters who on thursday before the storm was going to hit how bad it could be. eric whimple apparently slammed her and said, given what we know about the storm, as it makes its way to land fall is it too vindicate dean and her employer. no way. more whimple you are not a meteorologist and janice did a great job. >> next on news watch, hurricane sandy spins over th
. this is the amusement park at seaside heights before and after the storm. governor chris christie toured his battered state by air, described what happened as unthinkable. >> the devastation that's happened to new jersey is beyond what's happened to anyone else, at least from the reports i've seen so far. that should come as no shock since the storm made landfall here. >> reporter: it hit just south of atlantic city, the gambling and tourism city, leaving residents who defied the mandatory evacuation order stranded. dozens had to be stranded from shelters of last resort where the power failed. in northern new jersey, more search and rescue, after a tidal surge pushed a river over its banks. the water rose five feet in a matter of minutes. >> it's like a lake in our basement. and it filled up to our stairs. >> there was no phone lines, the electricity was out, all our phones were dead, basically, we couldn't call nobody. >> reporter: across the state, 2.4 million customers, 60% of the population have no power. the worst of it was probably right along the coast, in towns like point pleasant beach, wher

finished the bromance tour with chris christie. it is a good week for the president. >> when you read the mayor's reasons, what was he waiting for. there wasn't a single thing that he was in line for? >> it seems to me that he is someone who has a large conception on his role on american national affairs and an early endorsement would not preserve that. the mayor's people say there is off the recoorecord reporters ae time. if you look at the economists the center right conservative publication, what you see is that the president's record is who he is and how he has governed and it meets with the approval of the board and people like mike bloomberg. it is the polar opposite that has been painted by on the right for so long. he called up mitt romney for flip-flopping and saying i might have voted for him. which is almost as damming as the endorsement itself. >> a lot of great reaction in the local media here to what has happened in the last few days. mike lutica wrote this. what president obama barack obama and the others brought with them was their government. you better believe that m

and unthinkable. that's what the new jersey governor chris christie is calling the damage from the super storm sandy that slammed his state. and just look along the jersey shore. or what was. tonight, officials are blaming the storm for more than three dozen deaths across the country. and more than 8 million customers, not people, 8 million customers have no power. most of them in new york and new jersey. look at this map here. the damage from the monster storm extends as far as west as michigan. the blue areas are the flooding. the red is wind damage and the white, that's snow and lots of it. parts of west virginia have already gotten more than 2 feet of snow. the blizzard warnings are in effect in more than a dozen counties until tomorrow afternoon. new jersey, of course, took the direct hit from sandy just south of atlantic city. officials say the casinos are okay but the storm washed away part of the board walk there. and in other towns along the jersey shore. farther north just outside new york city emergency workers are using boats to rescue hundreds upon hundreds of people from homes th

, we talked about this being time for a national unity. chris christie yesterday, one of romney's chief surrogates, someone who has been vocal in his support for the former governor of massachusetts, had this to say about the president yesterday. >> yep. >> appreciate that call from the president. very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. i spoke to the president three times yesterday. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state and not once did he bring up the election. if he's not bringing it up you can be sure that people in new jersey are not worried about that primarily if one of the guys who's running isn't. the president has been outstanding in this and so the folks of fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> overwhelmingly positive assessment of the president. >> he's not just a romney surrogate, the keynote speaker of the republican convention we saw and just to put it in context, one of the major premise sis of the romney campaign is barack obama came to power promising to bring the country together and, in fact, mitt romney is the g
